Got this wierd problem since I have installed windows 10 x64 pro and I' trying to blame windows for it , but it only happens when qbittorrent is running.
Might by a combo between both.
If qbittorrent started I get some kind of audio stutter/glitch in basicaly app .games , media playback, inside browser playback (youtube).
ram and cpu consumption are quite low from qbittorrent and i've seen on forum I'm not the only on with this problem.

Tried win10 with qbittorrent in Virtualbox, the phenomenon is there: rare/minor pops are detected.

However, doing the following greatly reduced the audio drop/pop for me:

  • Open:
    windows-8 1-network-and-sharing-center
  • Select Properties
    1
  • Uninstall or uncheck every item except IPv4 and IPv6
    network-adapter-windows-8
  • (may need to) reboot

at this point i'm almost sure to have addressed the issue as the micro-freeze* that i observe occur only when qbittorrent is active (duration→0,5s, frequency→1/2 hour)

*audio stutter/glitch

OS: 10x64 (clean install), i7 4790, Z97, latest WHQL driver

This many not help those on windows 10, I have 7. But I found chrome to be the issue. What I did was download the beta canary. Disable hardware rendering and added the flag --force-wave-audio to the shortcut.

I am not sure which one those fixed helped I used this bug post as a guide https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=516196

it's a windows 10 bug, not related with qbittorrent in any way. it's manifests using any torrent client.

Unfortunately, as the forum is currently down we cannot point you to the thread where a fair amount of testing was done to identify the problem as a Windows 10 issue NOT a qbittorrent/libtorrent problem.

qbittorrent is the catalyst NOT the cause.

"Downgrade" to Windows 8.1 or switch to Ubuntu 16.04... I don't think Microsoft cares about this one, it's been busted for > 1.5 years since the Windows 10 preview.

You can try using LatencyMon, using different audio hardware, updating drivers, or disabling some of your hardware to see if the situation improves, but I wouldn't expect much. Rebooting may also help for a little while, sometimes.

This bug is not per say caused by qbittorrent. It is only the catalyst. The symptom for me is a 1-2 second sound drop every 30 min when qbittorrent is on.

The cause is the bad windows 10 driver from Creative for the X-Fi series. The reason I believe that is because when I upgraded to win 10 from 8.1 all worked fine. During a driver reinstall of my sound card (the card would simply trigger by itself a driver reinstall every month or so) the bug appeared. This was the first time the issue happened and it was the first the driver got installed under windows 10. The same driver that was flawless under win 8. I updated the driver online, tried different versions, they all suffered the same problem on windows 10. Even a clean install of win 10 or a motherboard change didn't seem to improve anything.

I could reproduce the bug with only one other program: Aida64. It was when "enable disk temperature measurement" was checked. I'm guessing it has something to do with how the disk pooling is happening or something. Not sure if this helps anyone, but I would really want a fix, otherwise I'll be soon buying a new sound card.

FWIW I had this happen with Windows 10's built-in drivers for a USB DAC.

I would be interested to know if this helps (I no longer have a Windows 10):

in an elevated cmd:

bcdedit /set disabledynamictick true
bcdedit /set useplatformclock false
bcdedit /set useplatformtick false

followed by a reboot.

Note that Windows will eventually reset the settings (according to the reddit comment below), so this might have to be run before every reboot.

TCP Optimizer has solved this issue for me. Run it, select your connection speed, tick Optimal and Apply changes. Restart follows.

Well, it worked for about a day and half. And then the stutters came back.
What makes this so strange is that the stutters are so completely random.. you can have a day without them. And then the next day you get a few here and there, and so on..weird. The culprit in my case is definitely ndis.sys. I get like 54,00xx ms execution times. Or 54000 μs

I had a similar problem on Windows 10 but with a different torrent client.
The fall creator's update (build 16299.19) fixed it.
The highest dpc execution time for ndis.sys was around 2,5 ms and for tcpip.sys 1,3 ms in the last 22 hours.

Yeah, fall creators update seems to have fixed the problem. The stutter is gone in my case.
I did however switch sata cable ports on my motherboard for my storage disks so I would not have to change drive letters to my liking when clean installing win10.

I found out the problem for me concerning this was high cpu usages which was being caused by ZoneAlarm. I uninstalled ZoneAlarm and I was torrenting normally again without any high cpu usage which was causing the crackling audio and stuttering system lag. Smooth as butter system once again while torrenting.
